Chris Mager, UK producer known as Kurus, from Surrey, currently living in Nottingham. He's come on most listeners' radar this year when he released some collaborations with up and coming artists. His work with vocalists such as Madson Project has everyone asking for more from this champion. Without question he's one of our most talented musicians and we expect big things from this artist.
Kurus's music is a concoction of sad, floaty melodies that sit on top of deep, after-hours basslines. Titled "Dreams", this artist's second EP features 4 productions channeling the vibe of his musical universe, with crisp kick drums, punchy snare hits, and floaty atmospherics emulating. The producer carres' the essence of the original composition into uncharted territory with finesse, evident in his tracks, like his excellent track produced with Too Much. His unique design of blending electronic ambience with elements of hypnotic instrumentals creates a perfect vibe of hip hop beats and chilled out sounds.
Including perfect collaborations with talented vocalists like YudN, Beth Duck and DREEZE, this album is an array of ambient melodies and captivating vocals, which is about keeping the soul and hip-hop's roots true and paying homage to the ones that helped start it. From start to finish, amazing singers creates precise, smoothly woven stories of love and struggle in all phases maintained by Kurus's laid back production and steady rhythms.
"This EP has been my most time consuming work, starting in July, creating loads of different tracks and considering loads of different sounds, but ultimately finishing with these 4 tracks, 6 months later, that I am very happy with. It’s been difficult finding the time as music is really just a hobby for me, but Im so thankful its finally all come together.I wanted a hip hop / r&b / electronic feel and think I have achieved this. I can say that this EP truly represents my sound, but I take inspiration every day from hundreds of artists that I listen to every day. Of course this wouldn’t be anything without the insane talent that is featured on the EP, from friends I know personally to vocalists and producers from the other side of the world, I am happy to give you: “Dreams”." - Kurus

"I started this project with Gold Prospector as a way to express the soft and chill side of my sound. Thomas has graciously giving me a chance to showcase my growth through his platform, and for that I am super grateful. The first track I wrote for this EP was Violet Aura. I associate a lot of music with colors and that track just screamed violet to me for whatever reason. At that point, I decided to stick with the color theme. I've always been a fan of concept albums so a lot of my work is all thematically relevant to something. In this case, colors. Violet Aura was heavily modeled after my track "Maya" that I released a few months back. I like that style quite a bit so I wanted to emulate it once more before I moved on to something else. I don't like to dwell on specific styles too long as I find that boring for myself. No offense to anyone that does at all, I think I just have a short attention span lol. I then wrote Jade Aura. That track was specifically influenced by a lot of work done by Night Owl Collective, as well as Gold Prospector themselves. Vocal chopping is something that I've always struggled with so I made it the focus of this one. Well that one specific vocal sample I use in Jade, I ended up using in all the tracks except for Gold Aura. I figured that thematically, it fit well. Gold Aura was written as a soft outro at first. I had been talking to Knowuh for a little while at that point and we had wanted to work together. It hit me randomly that Gold Aura would sound really cool with some indie-style vocals laid on top! So I sent it over and Knowuh sent back stems for the vocals within a few hours. They sounded so good too! We ended up finishing that one pretty quick. Azure Aura was ironically the last track I wrote for the EP. That one is directly influenced by Audiobot's "Remember" which was also released through Night Owl Collective. Anyone who's heard that song can probably tell lol. Anyways, hope you all enjoy the EP. Much love everyone <3" - Too Much
